Distance charts

Below you’ll find New Zealand distance charts for the North Island and South Island. Print them off and keep them handy on your road trip.

Distances between New Zealand cities are given in kilometres. Remember that distances can be deceptive. Many roads are steep and winding, which means that you won’t be able to travel at motorway speed. You’ll also want to stop regularly and make the most of the photo opportunities, so take your time when travelling across New Zealand!
